High-level audio production comes easy with this fusion of premium components, Roland-quality engineering, and proprietary preamp and streaming technology. Octa-Capture is not only the perfect interface for multi-channel computer-based production, but also a great solution for expanding the I/O capability of the V-Studio 700 and V-Studio 100. Brimming with quality and performance seldom seen in its price range, Octa-Capture is the next-generation audio interface.

Eight Premium Mic Preamps

With its eight mic preamps, Octa-Capture shows its mettle in multi-mic applications like recording drums or full bands. The input level specs for Channels 7 and 8 have been optimized for extremely dynamic sound sources with high peak levels such as kick drums; the extra headroom (up to +16dBu) available on these channels helps prevent clipping and other recording problems. OCTA-CAPTURE also features independent compressors on its eight analog inputs to control the dynamics of difficult sound sources, ensuring solid recordings with clear sound and consistent levels.

One-Click AUTO-SENS: Automatic Input Level Adjustment

Setting optimum recording levels is an indispensable part of capturing high-quality recordings. If input levels are too high, the sound will distort; if levels are too low, you lose the advantage of the excellent resolution afforded by digital recording, and the sound suffers from signal-to-noise ratio deterioration. To solve these issues, OCTA-CAPTURE is equipped with a newly developed "AUTO-SENS" function, which makes it quick and easy for even novice users to set the optimum level for a particular sound source. With AUTO-SENS, all you have to do is press a button, supply sound input, and the built-in DSP will analyze the sound and set the optimum input level. In addition to Manual mode, where the DSP begins analyzing when you press the button and stops when you press it again, you can also define a preset analysis time of 30 seconds, 1 minute, 3 minutes, or 5 minutes. This revolutionary function is a real time-saver in recording sessions where setup time is limited.

Extreme Low-Latency Driver

Octa-Capture offers incredible stability and industry-leading low-latency USB performance via Roland's proprietary VS STREAMING technology. All current Mac and PC DAW platforms are supported through ASIO 2.0/WDM (Windows) and Core Audio (Mac) drivers. Thanks to VS STREAMING, you can use multiple devices (two Octa-Capture units or one Octa-Capture plus a V-Studio 100 or V-Studio 700) on the same USB bus without compromising stability, performance, or audio quality.

Four Flexible Monitor Mixes

With OCTA-CAPTURE and its high-performance DSP boasting 40-bit internal processing capability, you can use up to four digital mixers in two different categories (input mixer and output mixer) without tasking your PC. With these "direct mixers," you're able to directly output any connected source without routing it through your DAW program, and also tweak your sounds using OCTA-CAPTURE's built-in digital reverb and compressor. You can provide four independent latency-free mixes for performers, with different source volumes and dry-wet balances to suit the preferences of each musician. Each digital mixer also features a patch bay, which allows you to route your outputs for various applications and save these settings on your PC

Link Two Units for 16 x 16 Audio Input/Output

Supports Major Digital Audio Workstations (DAW)

Thanks to ASIO 2.0/WDM support for PC and Core Audio drivers for Mac, the Octa-Capture supports all major DAW platforms, including Cakewalk, ProTools, and more.

I have two of these units strapped together to provide for a total of 16 ports. I am absolutely thrilled with the performance. I had a single MOTU 828 MKII which was working fine but I really wanted more ports and you cannot use ASIO drivers for multiple devices. I was particularly impressed with the documentation of this product which is significantly better than what you get used to for music products that you end up buying. Someone actually tried to write a manual which made the product useable quickly. Greatly appreciated! I will alert you to a few things NOT in the manual or not obvious that will help a lot and avoid problems:

Do NOT use the Octa-Capture on a USB 3.0 port. Despite the spec saying they are backward compatible you will get nothing but horrid garbage if you try to record. The interface can be seen and configured without a problem from the Octa-Capture control program but that is deceptive. Put it on a USB 2.0 port or be sorry. I spent a LOT of time... Read more
This unit works great with an HP Pavilion Dv7 laptop Win7 64. My DAW is Reaper. I am using separate HD 7200 for audio recording and have 8 gigs of ram. This replaced my defective MBOX3 which I returned to Avid after hours of trying to get it to work.

For the same price, I was able to get the Octa-Capture which does much more than the MBOX ever did. You can record up to 10 tracks at a time. WOW! Also, there are 10 outputs, and each pair of outs has it's own mixer. The practical application is different monitor mixes for each band member. (time to upgrade to in-ear monitors) There is a screen on the unit which doubles the information provided via the Win7 driver control panel. So that means you can use the unit as a mixer without the computer.

Also included is MIDI in/out. This was a must for our Roland V-drum kit which triggers our Superior Drummer software. A word about latency: This goes down to 48spls. This is the fastest turn around I have ever... Read more
+1 on the Roland Octa-Capture, despite the price - I started out in the $400 budget range and was beaten into reasonableness by purchasing and returning other products.
I'm a windows 7 x64 user, a happy owner of a fastrack pro but wanted more tracks. I just went through an extensive search, and one thing I kept seeing come up was the relatively new Roland Quad-Capture and Octa-Capture. However because of budget constraints and the fact that I use Studio One V2, I decided to to the FW route and try the FireStudio Project - big mistake - I wrote a separate review for that product, which is ultimately a one-star as would be any review I'd give to a FireWire product at this point.
In the end after a lot of painful purchase/return trial-and-error, I paid up considerably from my original ~$400 budget for an Octa-Capture and boy was I amazed - it turned out to be totally worth it. This thing worked perfectly out of the box, the driver / mixer software is awesome, it has a lot of... Read more
